Forum: forums Subject: Difficulties in downloading files today

I'm using windows xp completely updated and current.

I run Firefox 1.5.0.1 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1)

I also use a registered version of GetRight 5.2b as my download manager.

I copy the link and place it, as normal into the download manager. After a short while, the listing vanishes from my download manager's jobs list as if it had been successfully downloaded. The file where completes films are stored shows a 24k file with the correct name of the job in question.

Those files the download manager was working on prior to this morning are downloading fine, and can be paused and resumed as normal.

I tried downloading a file using firefox's downloader as well as the "download them all" firefox extension with identical unsuccessful results.

Writing in from Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada.
Hope this helps

I don't know, but possibly this is a related thread- others having other problems today: http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=56105

If you could add reports of specifically failing urls onto this subthread it might help:

All downloads are completely screwed- there is not a single download working, only streams, that I can find in the entirety of archive-
This is serious stuff people- let me know when it gets fixed.

I've had pretty much the same problem. The file appears in my download manager for a few seconds then disappears into my download folder when I click on the icon to play it on mediaplayer nothing happens.
